Video Display "Negative" for DVD Playback

By DouglasB ·
I understand the reader might need specifics but: video display is fine otherwise, but when playing a DVD movie it appears to be a negative image or very low color setting. There is a video capture card in this system also and when viewing a vcr tape for recording it appears ok. Any help? Thanks.

Sounds like some kind of software issue what are you using to view the DVD?

Remember some DVDs use a copy protection software called Macrovision, if your DVD player is recognizing your video capture card as a VCR or you have a VCR connected to the equipment that can be your problem. As a second idea, check your video card drivers, Sometime I tried to install linux using an uncompatible (was not listed as known incompatible) video card and have the same issue, try updating your drivers to the last version. Good Luck, and let us know what happened, and if this doesnt work wive us more details to try to help you

I pulled the video capture card and programs from the system. Using Power DVD to view movies. I upgraded to a newer version of Power DVD and pulling the capture card and drivers did not help.

Sounds like a possible issue with the decoding- if it is hardware based on the card- that is very suspect. If the decoding is done with software, try loading something other than what came with the card such as Cyberlink or Nvidia.

The decoder is software driven and I have Cyberlink ver 5 installed. Thanks
